About This Product:
Since the very first Australian Touring Car Championship race held at Gnoo-Blass in 1960, Holden has been a mainstay on the grid competing in the premier category of Australian motorsport.
Over 1000 race starts, a glittering history and a legion of passionate fans later, Holden's time will come to an end at the 2022 Adelaide 500 where the brand will make its final racing appearance in the championship.
Their time racing in ATCC / Supercars has seen Holden attain a legendary position in the history of the sport which may not be surpassed, winning more than 50% of the races they have started while claiming a raft of podiums, pole positions and 23 driver's championships along the way.
Australia's premier motor race at Bathurst has also been a happy hunting ground for the lion. Holden have claimed 36 wins of 'The Great Race' - the most of any brand at the hands of some of the greatest drivers to ever turn a wheel.
To commemorate Holden's significant achievements across ATCC/Supercars history, Authentic Collectables are proud to present this incredible Holden VF Commodore featuring a very special livery by renowned motorsport designer Peter Hughes.
Hughes, a GM Automotive Designer for many years and the man who has designed many of the Holden’s famous race winning liveries has worked in collaboration with us to create this stunning End of an Era model for Holden fans:
"What a privilege it was to be asked to create the ‘End of an Era’ Holden livery for Authentic Collectables. With the model having such an important message and historical significance, I wanted to deliver a look for collectors that just screamed ‘Holden Forever’" Hughes said.
"Because of that, the livery itself will feel pretty familiar to the Holden Motorsport fan, with traditional use and placement of the racing lion on the hood and rear doors. I dabbled with other ideas but it just had to be this way for the end of an era. The real individual part of this livery is the unique ‘tribute gold‘, chosen to compliment the contrasting black. Not only does it look very special, it also signifies that the Holden Era was also a ‘Golden Era’ in Australian Motorsport History."
"I hope everyone enjoys this very special piece of Holden history."
As Hughes mentioned, Holden's time in ATCC/Supercars really has been a golden era and this model truly represents that.
The VF Commodore is the perfect platform to represent this success and features various statistics and nods to the remarkable history of Holden in ATCC/Supercars which have been incorporated into the livery.
It's an absolute must have for fans.
Don’t miss this model which is scheduled to be produced in high quality die-cast with detailed interior, opening bonnet and all four doors in an exclusive limited edition with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity, signed by Peter Hughes.

To do this you need to navigate to the product page of the specific model you're interested in.
Once you're on the model product page, please click on the black 'Register Your Interest' tab which should appear on the right hand side of your screen on each future release product page on our website, enter your email in the relevant section and submit the form.
When the model arrives in stock you will receive an advanced email notification from us letting you know that it is in stock with a link to complete and pay for your order while stock lasts.
Please ensure your email address is right before submitting the register your interest form. Unfortunately a confirmation email isn't sent when you register your interest for models on our website, the only time the system will email you about that specific model will be when it arrives in stock.
We offer this option due to the amount of time models generally take to produce (usually 6-18 months) so you're not out of pocket until the model actually arrives.
For Future Release Prints, Books + Other Products:
Depending on the type of product or brand, we also offer a paid pre-order option on our website.
If a product is available for paid pre-order on our website then you will be able to add it to your cart and purchase it like any normal in stock item.
Details about the pre-order will be listed at the top of the product description if it’s available and when we expect it to arrive in our warehouse.
A paid pre-order option will only ever be available on our website for products that aren’t models - we usually use this feature for prints, books and other non-model products.
We offer the paid pre-order option online with us for these products because we can predict production and shipping times more accurately and are usually much faster than the model cars to produce.
Of course, if you wish to order these items from your local stockist, please make an enquiry with them.
